South Florida Synergy Summit for Cultural & Heritage Tourism

Date: May 16, 2018 - May 18, 2018

Event Description The two-day Cultural & Heritage Tourism Summit is the place where tourism "Power Players" will gather to communicate and explore synergy for collaboration as well as form strategic partnerships that strengthen and protect our tourism ecosystem. We will showcase cultural and heritage tourism assets expanding the tourism footprint and economic impact in our heritage neighborhoods and multicultural communities.
The Cultural & Heritage Tourism Summit is all about making connections that extend beyond the causeway, city and county lines. Our goal is to connect tourism-related small businesses, attractions, artists, tour operators and tour guides with CVBs, Concierges, DMCs, Travel Agents, OTAs and Meeting Planners through 1-on-1 matchmaking meetings and the Summit Exhibition showcasing their attractions, products and services.
The Cultural & Heritage Tourism Summit will acknowledge and honor the Best of the Best in tourism: CVBs, Concierges, DMCs, Meeting Planners, Tour Operators, Tour Guides, Travel Agents, City/County Cultural Affairs agencies, Creatives and Tourism-Related Businesses during the Tourism Power Players “Best of the Best” Awards Luncheon.
